Subcontractor Default insurance

Cove SDI keeps projects moving if a subcontractor defaults

Subcontractor Default Insurance is a highly specialized product providing coverage to general contractors for direct and indirect costs of subcontractor defaults.

Our SDI product is aimed at general contractors with annual volumes of $50 million to $2 Billion of annual construction value.

SDI was developed as a response to GC’s issues with subcontractor bonds and the delays and lack of control when a default happens. SDI puts the general contractor in control of any subcontractor default allowing it to make decisions in the best interests of the project.

We meet with every GC’s key management team to understand their business processes and design the best possible program for their business.
